May 2017 Challenge - Transport

Recommended Posts

reducing-tyre-pressure-for-a-smoother-riRecently drove a trailer-sailer across Australia from Perth to Cairns - 5,500 kms in 6 days. There was a definite "Priscilla Queen of the Desert" vibe through parts of the outback. :)

 

 

 

 

 

Apparently, some people still turn up with a dinghy on that type of road at Mungo National Park (NSW). They're only 15,000 years too late when the lake dried up and became a salt pan...

Hi wondered if someone could explain how to add an image to this competition! not done it before

 

There are at least 2 ways to post an image here:

 

1 - the easiest is to open the image in another tab or window and drag the image to the reply box at the bottom of this page. This works for windows and macs. However not all browsers seem to allow it.

 

2 - go to the image you want to include (preferably in a new tab or window);

- right click on the image and choose copy image location;

(in some browsers choose view image and copy the complete location from the address line of your browser);

- go back to the reply box and click on the image icon that looks like a little polaroid photo;

- an Image Properties box opens;

- now paste that complete location on the URL line;

- click OK and there it is.

On my Mac with Safari I can also go to the preview page, click on the image, then control click on the enlarged image for a menu and choose Copy Image. Then I can paste into the forum reply box. I used to be able to drag and drop but that stopped working for me.

Some photos of heavy haulers.

 

The first is an autoclave for mining.  The cylindrical vessel was reported to be 83 feet long, 14.5 feet wide, and weighing 168 short tons.  There were two tractors pushing, but I couldn't get everything in even at 17 mm.  On rural two lane highway in Arizona, USA
